Hi everyone,
I'm trying to write a paper for a college class on Stanley Spector, who was a drum teacher in the 1950-70's, I under stand that both Mr. Reed and Owings studied with him. I would like to get their impressions of how his teachings impacted their playing. My Problem is, I can't seem to fond a way of contacting them. I would leave my email and name here but don't know if it's allowed. Does anyone have ant suggestions?
Thanks for reading this post.

I have several Paiste cymbals, I love my 21" Power ride. I also have a 21" Silver Mellow ride. The Power ride works well for rock and country. The Silver Mellow works great for jazz and soft country sounds. You can work across their rides and get different sounds even on the bell.  ;)
Gear / Equipment / Instruments / Paiste 2002 Rides
« Last post by Johnny Williams on September 23, 2014, 01:06 PM »
Hello, I am new to this forum, so I hope I posted on the right section. xD

I've been recently researching for the perfect rock/metal/blues/reggae/overall versatile ride. What I am looking for is a heavyweight cymbal, with a very defined stick sound and ping, kinda dark pitched, a powerful bell and a controllable wash which doesn't overwhelm the drums or the stick sound.
So far, I am 50/50 for two Paiste 2002 rides: the 22" Heavy Ride and the 22" Power Ride. The thing is, I don't have any experience with any of them, nor any shop which sells Paiste cymbals nearby. Also, the sound samples recorded on the Paiste website don't do any justice for me...
I'd like to hear some opinions from any drummer which had previous/actual experience with the Power/Heavy/both.

Thank you, a lot! :D
General Board / Ernie Durawa on Drummer Cafe TV

A new episode on Drummer Cafe TV features my interview with Austin-based drummer, Ernie Durawa.

In the 40-minute video interview filmed at the Drummer Cafe studio in Nashville, Ernie talks about how he got into drumming, stories about his studies with legendary drum educator, Roy C. Knapp, his Grammy® Award winning work with The Texas Tornados, his jazz group, Los Jazz Vatos, and his most record, Restless Mind, with blues singer/guitarist, Murali Coryell. We also talk about playing shuffles (eg. Texas Shuffle).


By the way, Ernie Durawa is one of the original members of the Drummer Cafe (f/k/a The Drum Ring International).

I hope you'll take the time to watch the interview on DCTV and learn more about Ernie and his music career.
General Board / DRUM LESSON: The Rolling Triple Samba
« Last post by Bart Elliott on September 22, 2014, 09:17 AM »
Andy Ziker shares a unique drum lesson on applying a traditional samba bass drum ostinato and morphing it into something that works in a 12/8 or eighth-note triplet context. Audio examples, created by yours truly, are included.

I have lived and played my drums in public places, all over the world. If you are near LA, you can play on Hollywood Blvd during the day and halfway into the night. If you are in Frankfurt, Germany, you can play in Sachsenhausen. If you are in Manila, Philippines, you can set up outside the Mall of Asia during the day.
Gear / Equipment / Instruments / Re: The incredible shrinking ride cymbal
« Last post by Bob Dias on September 10, 2014, 04:17 PM »
For the past 10 years I have settled on 2 main rides...a 21" Heavy Mehmet turk and a 21" medium Bosphorus New Orleans. I always play both at all our gigs (Ugly Rumor, classic rock covers).  22's were always a bit too woobly or gongy and 20" just never seemed to fill the sonic space right (seemed a little thin). Bob.
Gear / Equipment / Instruments / Double pedal connecting rod / drive shaft
« Last post by skn on August 31, 2014, 02:38 AM »
Hey dudes,

I have been looking for a Tama Iron Cobra (slightly older model - HP900PSW) connecting bar, but it seems that buying a new one is the best solution.

I'm just wondering if there are connecting rods for sale that don't suffer from the usual wear and tear in the joints. Often after much playing the rivets in the joints become slack and the slave pedal becomes significantly stiffer and has pedal lag. Do other companies such as AXIS or Trick have bars that hold up to more punishment that also fit Tama Iron Cobra pedals?

I realise there is an element of maintenance that is needed to make sure gear lasts - but eventually this will happen, and has to me... just looking for a long-time solution.

Thanks in advance.
